A stroll round Cuber Reservoir

519 Cuber

Today we were off on just a short stroll round Cuber Reservoir. The starting point of so many walks in Mallorca.

It had been a very wet winter and spring in Mallorca and I had never seen the reservoir so full.

Even the overflow / Frog pond was full of water. It provided a different perspective for my photo.

It was unusual to see the radar installations on the summit of Puig Major reflected in this pond that is usually dry at this time of year.

We continued along the path and looking across the reservoir I could see the outline of my favourite walk. The ridge route from Sa Rateta, Na Franquera on to L’Ofre. Three 1000 metre peaks. Not sure if I could manage it now.

Some sheep were grazing the lush grass close to the water. One had a magnificent set of horns.

We walked to the edge of the woods and then stopped for lunch. High above us we could see 12 Black Vultures soaring over the Serra de Torrellas. Closer to hand came a little finch, hoping for some crumbs.

We then made our way slowly back to the car and on to Porto Soller.

A chance to sit in the sun and enjoy a pint and a chat.

My aim is to create a photo diary of my walks and my travels. I have two main hobbies, walking and photography and these complement each other. I am a senior citizen, what used to be called an old age pensioner, but I don't feel old. Since retirement I have had more time to pursue my hobbies and the opportunity to travel more. My philosophy now is - Do what you can, while you can. My other interests are fine wines and keeping fit. These may not complement each other but keep me happy.
